I'm a newbie to the forums as well as a newbie owner of a new used 1999 Dutchman Express 29 ft. class c. It has a Chevy 7.4
A few months after we bought it the engine seized. So, I've been looking for a reman engine. All the companies I've been enquiring with are great until they find it is going in a rv. Is there really that much of difference, or is it purely a warranty issue they don' want to get involved with? The vin # match is fine.
Thanks for your help!

Welcome to RF, @Bobgar; glad you have joined us. Sorry that you are experiencing a problem getting a remanufactured engine for your coach. I would never have thought there would be a problem with an engine going into a Class C coach. No idea why it would matter. I would ask the supplier what the problem is and how you can get a remanufactured engine for your coach.

Short of that, I guess you could have your existing engine rebuilt by a qualified mechanic. It would probably be a bit more expensive, but you might also get a better product.

Good luck.

TJ

Check with Summit Racing or Jegs. They specialize in performance auto parts and crate engines. I KNOW they'll have a big block Chevy engine with a towing cam available. They both have great prices and I highly recommend them both. I've bought from them for over 30 years!
If you just want a long block built back to stock specs here's one.............https://www.summitracing.com/parts/vre-vck2/make/chevrolet
This one actually comes from Chevrolet Performance. It's a rebuilt long block as well.............https://www.summitracing.com/parts/nal-12339193?rrec=true
There's lots more to choose from!!!
